STOWAWAY ! Buzz Rover apparently has become tired of just seeing the USS Hornet’s Museum's SD45 preparations! He stowed away in a museum vehicle as it went to the NASA Ames Research Center to pick up the moon rock for the upcoming event. He made himself quite at home, climbing onto several of their fascinating exhibits - clockwise from top left -Science on a Sphere, Ames Spacecraft Missions, Buzz Rover becoming a giant (compared to himself) astronaut, and Living and Working in Space

Buzz Rover - undercover Uh-Oh ...Buzz Rover has been caught impersonating a Hornet Museum security member! Apparently, he was trying to gain access to “secret locations” around the ship and see if there were any security loop holes to report back to Buzz Aldrin.
